Westmoreland State Park lies within Westmoreland County, Virginia. The park extends about one and a half miles along the Potomac River and covers 1,321 acres. The Horsehead Cliffs provide visitors with a panoramic view of the Potomac River, and lower levels feature fossils and beach access. The park offers hiking, camping, cabins, fishing, boating and swimming, although mechanical issues have kept the swimming pool closed since 2021. Located on the Northern Neck Peninsula, the park is close to historical sites featuring earlier eras: George Washington's birthplace and Stratford Hall, the birthplace of Robert E. Lee.

  • Outstanding park with a great trail to the shark tooth beach. Saw some fox pups very near the visitor center.

  • Gorgeous beach with all the cliffs. Very short easy hike to the beach. We brought sifters and found some quality prehistoric shark teeth. The water is clean for swimming too. No bathrooms down there. The campground is awesome. They have a camp store with basics but hardly any food. There‚Äôs a general store with some prepared food and a bit of junk food nearby. The campground has bathrooms with showers.
  • Nice park for camping. Camp sites are big enough to fit 2 cars and we booked site with water and power. Restrooms were kept clean throughout the day. There are 2 beaches in the park. Fossil park is a short trail and the other one is big and easily accessible. Loved the stay.
